    I really liked your take on the whole escape bit. The graphics were great, and the music wasn't too bad, but the whole thing sorta crumbled when I realized i could play infinitely by bashing up and z and automatically kill anything that would attempt escape. Maybe if there wasn't auto-targeting, it would have been more interesting. That, plus there wasn't a readme or in-game description of the controls, but they were pretty simple to figure out so that's alright. The intro glitched out on me, though, the bottom half of the text was cut off.

    I couldn't run the game. It shows the main screen one or two seconds, and then closes itself without any error message.

    I posted a version without sound, the main theme is still included as a .wav

    I love how the graphics take me waay back to my childhood memories (uhh, this doesn't sound right, considering the game's topic, but you know what I mean, right? Right?!:P). Game feels a little too easy and too slow-paced. Aother than that, it's a nice little game, feels like an old classic, which is very good!

    The no sound version has the same problem for me :'(
